Hi All,

I've been through the fourms but need a bit of clarity as this setup seems to be on the edge of working.

The potential rims are as follows:
Front: 18x8.5 (42mm Offset), would likely put 235's on.
Rear: 18x9.5 (44 mm Offset), would likely put 255's on.

By my numbers, this will change the following (including rubber):
Front: 10mm out further / 6mm closer on the inside
Rear: 19mm out further / 4mm closer on the inside

I'm concerned with the rear fitment as I want to stay inside the fenders, any thoughts? :confused:

Thanks for the help!

they will fit under the rears just fine. I had 18" 9.5 with 36mm offset and they didnt rub with 255 35 18. I would personally get 9" all the way around, if you have 4matic. Not being able to rotate the tires is a PIA. I got almost 17k miles on mine and the rears are half gone the fronts like new..
